A few thoughts and internet synchronicities tickled my interest today for the future year 2025; less than 11 years away.
Before you continue reading the information shared below, please consider what matters most at this moment, and all moments are “this moment” is the accurate observation; I place no burden on what calendar or cosmic cycle we are using but rather how good a living being we are, how much joy we share with others, and how we can help each other… knowledge, wisdom, and skills can assist in joyful creative living experience.
Forecasting the seasons or the weather is a useful skill and knowledge for harvesting food, preparing clothing for cold or rain; and in this vein I am interested in observing patterns in nature to discern cosmic cycles.
Many people claim that 2025 is the ascension from the Kali Yuga into the Dwapara (aka “Dvapara”) Yuga, while others claim this phase of the Zodiac Age of Pisces is in the Dwapara Yuga. Thus debate and uncertainty exist among some researchers.
We expect a resolution or a revelation soon.
Can we also expect some important geological, atmospheric, or social changes?…
*I wondered why policy makers were dating the 2025 year as important project deadlines:
Copenhagen’s Ambitious Push To Be Carbon Neutral by 2025
*Then I thought about geopolitics, the international monetary policy crisis, and the Armstrong Economic model with his forecasts based on π (Pi):
Russian Pravda is reporting that the Soviet Union will be resurrected by 2025. The truth about this, unfortunately, Europe is collapsing because of the socialism and the destruction of any future for the youth. Pravda this time is actually not spitting out wild propaganda. Russia will rise and become a very formidable power even on the economic front. They will be to Europe what the Germans were to Rome. –Armstrongeconomics
*A Year earlier (23 Nov 2013) Martin was writing that the cycles forecasts a high in gold with the demise of the “Western Political Systems”:
[…] “Add another 309 years and you get the birth of the Euro, and the start of this cycle for that was the 19 year low also in gold. This cycle was another reason we called for the all time low in gold would be 1999 and the birth of a new cycle, which should culminate by 2025 in the significant demise of Western political systems.” –armstrongeconomics
For those who are unfamiliar with Martin’s interpretation of cyclic waves do not misinterpret the above to mean good times and higher returns of investment markets until devastation in 2025. No, there are more waves and cycles interacting…
I do not comprehend his model, thus I will not attempt to explain it.
Martin does state:
“There are two flight-to-quality [capital flows]: 1. …domestic cyclical flow back and forth between the PUBLIC and the PRIVATE sectors.
2. …international capital flows. Capital flees economic and geopolitical turmoil.
… [capital] poured into Mortgages for the next 4.3 years and that bubble burst in 2007. It then flew into gold and that peaked in 2011. Then it moved back to the Dow and is shifting away from government bonds. That should peak in 4.3 years or 2015.75. The capital flows change direction every 4.3 years.
…focal point will be 31.4 years into it or 2017.05 (January). That should be the most they can postpone the start of this Sovereign Debt Crisis with the maximum culmination being 2025 and the optimal being 2020.” –armstrongeconomics 8/27/2013
*Look at the economic confidence chart with the downturns after 2015.75; 2024.35; and 2032.95
Here are more tidbits from Martin:
“the crisis years are 1932 – 1963 – 1995 – 2026 based upon the Pi cycle. There is also the Monetary Crisis Cycle that I will deal with in the report.”
*Cycles are a way of expressing an accurate observation of nature, even if perception is limited.
The wish is for greater awareness and increased perceptiveness as skills and comprehension grows.
The seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter are cyclic, as are nights and days are also shorter cycles.
I imagine as we near the year 2025 more accurate astronomical observations and decipherment of ancient text and hieroglyphics will reveal greater insights into the cosmic cycles, of which we are part of here on Earth.
I interpret ancient texts as stories of past experiences, and their observations may have been valid and valuable for their living comfort and survival. That does not necessarily mean the same experiences will be accurate observations and remain as valuable for us today. The cosmos may have changed, planets may have grown, new planets may have been born, and many other possible changes may effect our experiences in the current era. Having said that, pattern recognition should reward us with some predictable future events and thus comprehending ancient stories of the Great Ages is beneficial for us indeed.

Part 1: Unraveling the Yuga Cycle Timeline
The Yuga Cycle doctrine tells us that we are now living in the Kali Yuga; the age of darkness, when moral virtue and mental capabilities reach their lowest point in the cycle. The Indian epic The Mahabharata describes the Kali Yuga as the period when the “World Soul” is Black in hue; only one quarter of virtue remains, which slowly dwindles to zero at the end of the Kali Yuga. Men turn to wickedness; disease, lethargy, anger, natural calamities, anguish and fear of scarcity dominate. Penance, sacrifices and religious observances fall into disuse. All creatures degenerate. Change passes over all things, without exception.
The Kali Yuga (Iron Age) was preceded by three others Yugas: Satya or Krita Yuga (Golden Age), Treta Yuga (Silver Age) and the Dwapara Yuga (Bronze Age). In the Mahabharata, Hanuman gives the following description of the Yuga Cycle to the Pandava prince Bhima:
“The Krita Yuga was so named because there was but one religion, and all men were saintly: therefore they were not required to perform religious ceremonies… Men neither bought nor sold; there were no poor and no rich; there was no need to labour, because all that men required was obtained by the power of will…The Krita Yuga was without disease; there was no lessening with the years; there was no hatred, or vanity, or evil thought whatsoever; no sorrow, no fear. All mankind could attain to supreme blessedness. The universal soul was White… the identification of self with the universal soul was the whole religion of the Perfect Age. In the Treta Yuga sacrifices began, and the World Soul became Red; virtue lessened a quarter. Mankind sought truth and performed religious ceremonies; they obtained what they desired by giving and by doing. In the Dwapara Yuga the aspect of the World Soul was Yellow: religion lessened one-half. The Veda was divided into four parts, and although some had knowledge of the four Vedas, others knew but three or one. Mind lessened, Truth declined, and there came desire and diseases and calamities; because of these men had to undergo penances. It was a decadent Age by reason of the prevalence of sin.”
And now we are living in the dark times of the Kali Yuga, when goodness and virtue has all but disappeared from the world. But when did the Kali Yuga begin? And when does it end? In spite of the elaborate theological framework which describes the characteristics of this age, the start and end dates of the Kali Yuga remain shrouded in mystery. The popularly accepted date for the beginning of the Kali Yuga is 3102 BC, thirty-five years after the conclusion of the great battle of the Mahabharata. This is remarkably close to the proposed beginning of the current “Great Cycle” of the Mayan Long Count Calendar in 3114 BC. It is of interest to note that in both of these cases the beginning dates of the respective cycles were calculated retrospectively. The Mayans had recomputed their ancient calendars sometime between 400 BC to 50 CE, at the ceremonial center of Izapa in Mexico, and fixed the starting date of the current Great Cycle of their Long Count Calendar. And in India, sometime around 500 CE, a major review of the Indian calendric systems had taken place. It was during this time that the renowned astronomer Aryabhatta had identified the beginning date of the Kali Yuga as 3102 BC. Why was it suddenly necessary for two ancient civilizations to re-calculate dates that should have been an integral part of their calendric systems? How did such important time-markers slip out of their collective memory? We will revisit these questions later.
It is generally believed that Aryabhatta had calculated the start date of the Kali Yuga on the basis of the information in the Sanskrit astronomical treatise, the Surya Siddhanta, according to which the five “geocentric planets” (i.e. the planets visible to the naked eye) – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn – were aligned to 0° of Aries (near the star zeta Piscium) at the beginning of the Kali Yuga. He, thus, arrived at the date of 17/18 February, 3102 BC as the starting point of the Kali Yuga. However, modern simulations carried out by Richard Thompson show that on 17/18 February, 3102 BC, the five geocentric planets occupied an arc of roughly 42° in the sky and were scattered over three zodiacal signs – Aries, Pisces and Aquarius. This cannot be considered as a conjunction by any means. Far more spectacular ‘alignment’ of planets has occurred in the preceding and succeeding centuries. In other words, the conjunction of geocentric planets at 0° of Aries that was supposedly targeted by Aryabhatta did not take place in 3102 BC.
Does this mean Aryabhatta made an error in his back calculations? Not really. For, the Surya Siddhanta does not ever specify that such an alignment of planets took place at the beginning of the Kali Yuga. On the contrary, the Surya Siddhanta explicitly states that this conjunction of planets at 0° of Aries takes place at the end of the Golden Age (Satya / Krita Yuga). The text states: “Now, at the end of the Golden Age (Krita Yuga), all the planets, by their mean motion – excepting however their nodes and apsides – are in conjunction in the first of Aries” Unfortunately, however, this simple statement was misrepresented by some of the early commentators, in their eagerness to find an astronomical rationale for the 3102 BC date, and it has subsequently been promulgated as a fact.

*Below is an alternative view of the cosmic cycle calendar dates by authors Selbie and Steinmetz, of which I am not convinced. Yet, I share their presentation with the wish for your discernment and further research to enlighten us all. I am convinced we will solve this problem with the calendar dating methodology.
